This week's challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog is sure to be a fun one! It is to use newspaper on your card! It can be real newspaper, newspaper cardstock or patterned paper, a stamped image with a newspaper on it, etc. How about making your own flowers out of real newspaper?! I can't wait to see what all of you creative peeps come up with!
For my card, I used some Magnolia Newspaper Cardstock for my background, sentiment tag and behind a clear button. To make the button, Just punch out a small circle the same size as a clear button. Place the punched circle behind the button and then using a paper piercer, pierce the paper through the button holes. Then thread some string or twine through both the button and paper (careful not to tear the paper) and then tie it off! Now you have a decorated button to match any project! Easy Peasy!
The stamp set I used is by Stampendous and it's called "Garden Beauty".(Such a gorgeous set!) I colored it in with some Copics and then brushed on some Ranger Crackle Accents over the image. It dries in less than an hour to a shiny, cracked surface! Love it!
To finish off my card, I also used some White Opal Liquid Pearls, white trim, a paper doily and ribbon.
Don't forget, the random winner of this challenge will win a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore!
Have a wonderful day!
